Since, I am going to be a parent of a teen mom, I decided I wanted to write, and will write more about Teen Pregnancy and Teen Parenting.
My daughter also is starting a blog if anyone wants to read it.
Since, this adventure started for our family, I have decided to do some research.
Let me begin, I was a teen mom. So, I guess history does repeat itself.
The good ol’s USA has the highest rate of teen pregnancy and teen parents than any other western industrialized nation.
Every year 750,00 girls will get pregnant. That is just about 1/3 of all teen girls.
2/3 of the pregnant teens will not graduate from high school.
The good news is that teen pregnancy rates are dropping and lower now than they were in the 90’s. But, it is still a problem.
73 percent of the teen girl population will have sex before they are 20 years old. To me, that is astonishing.
We need to lower that number. So way some how, even if it is already dropping. It needs to drop more.
One of the ways is to allow the teaching or morals in schools. Yes, God. God himself will help this issue.
Will teens continue, sure, unfortunately.
But we have to start somewhere.
